Voltage Pictures is launching international sales on the heartwarming romance, Finding You at AFM2020

Voltage Pictures is launching international sales on writer-director Brian Baugh’s (The World We Make, I’m Not Ashamed) heartwarming romance Finding You, it was announced today by President and COO Jonathan Deckter. Voltage will begin talks on the hot title with buyers at the current American Film Market.

 

The film pairs rising stars Rose Reid, Jedidiah Goodacre, Katherine McNamara, Saoirse-Monica Jackson with industry heavyweights Judith Hoag, Patrick Bergin, Tom Everett Scott and Academy Award-winner Vanessa Redgrave.

 

Shot throughout Ireland, with pickups in New York City and LA, the film, from Red Sky Studios, Nook Lane Entertainment and MK1 Studios, will have a wide theatrical release in the US by Roadside Attractions in early 2021. Producers are Ken Carpenter, Julie Ryan, Stephen Preston and Brian Baugh, Executive producers are Mike Roman and Julian Reid.

 

The film follows aspiring violinist Finley Sinclair (Rose Reid), who travels to a coastal village in Ireland for a semester abroad following an ill-fated audition at a prestigious New York music conservatory.  At the B&B run by her host family, Finley encounters heartthrob movie star Beckett Rush (Jedidiah Goodacre), who is filming another installment of his medieval fantasy-adventure franchise. A romance sparks between the unlikely couple, igniting a journey of discovery and inspiration for both Finley and Beckett. However, when the pressures of Beckett’s stardom threaten to crush their dreams, Finley must decide what she is willing to risk for love.

“YA romance is a genre we and our international partners know like the back of our hand, making us perfectly positioned to capitalize on the full potential on this special film internationally,” said Deckter. “As we’ve seen before, audiences turn out in droves for this type of smart, edgy coming-of-age romance, so we’re thrilled to add this highly commercial prospect to our AFM slate.”

 

Voltage has recently emerged as an industry leader in the YA romance releasing space; After starring Hero Fiennes Tiffin and Josephine Langford, took over $70M worldwide in 2019 and its sequel, After We Collided looks set to replicate that success, having already taken over $50M from since it opened in select markets from September 2nd. Voltage also sold out worldwide on the YA novel adaptation Words on Bathroom Walls, starring Charlie Plummer when it presented to buyers at the virtual Marche du Film.

 

Finding You joins the robust Voltage sales slate including the political biopic Reagan, starring Dennis Quaid, the action-thriller The Marksman starring Liam Neeson, the upcoming third and fourth installments of the After franchise and the horror-thriller The Seventh Day starring Guy Pearce.
